Your statements on the new rink revenue being no different reveal limited knowledge of what the new arena configuration will be.

Included in that 18.200 are 5000 luxury seats(Suites, sky paddock, loge, club paddock seating) that are classed and priced as "Luxury" "Premium" seats and all offering to your seat service. Guess what such seats will cost or what they tend to cost in other rinks? I'll also note that in many rinks such seating has additional surcharges and for instance having to buy the seat, or table(in addition to tickets) for a term much like you would for a suite. These 5K premium seats are in addition to the lower bowl seats which will also be premium priced seats.
As I've stated many times this is really a blueblood pricing arena with around 12-13K tickets that will be high priced. Which is in marked contrast to the present arena.

This not even mentioning the revenues brought in from the resto/lounges that are part of the new arena plan. Or any revenues from Wintergarden etc.
